**Answers:**

**01.** First find the common denominator for the numbers 3, 4, 6, and 8. The only common denominator less than 30 is 24. Therefore, the students with a "B" = 8, "B-"= 6, "C" =4, failed = 3. This represents 21 of the students; so the 3 remaining students received an "A".

**02.** Divide 250 by 11 which equals 22.8. Now when you combine the extra 8 scraps with the scraps you'll have from the 22 bars, you'll have 30 more scraps. They will produce 2 more bars; so the total additional bars will be 24.

**03. **If Kerry eats 3 times as fast as Pete, he must be able to eat 3 times as many dumplings as his brother. Therefore, Kerry eats 24 while Pete eats 8 ( 32 ÷ 4 = 8 ). Together it takes them 45 minutes.

**04.** He had 6 oranges to start with, and ate 2 the first day and 2 the second day.

**05.** Joan is 32, Jane is 28, and Jean is 16.
